    Hi all,

    I need some help/advice from you regarding race week and travel.
    In the level 1 ironman plan, my actual race week is:

    M: Strength TS6
    T: CF9 RFF4
    W: SSI1
    T: CFF4 RF3 Strength TS1
    F: SCI1
    S: STa1 CRe1 RTa1
    S: Race

    I will travel Thursday from early in the morning (before sunrise) till noon, so I was thinking at the following modalities to rearrange the workouts:

    M: CF9 RFF4 Strength TS6
    T: SSI1
    W: CFF4 RF3
    T: travel. Eat, sleep and the Strength TS1(in the evening)
    F: SCI1
    S: STa1 CRe1 RTa1
    S: Race
    The advantage will be that on Thursday I will have a day almost off, the strength session being light enough and helping me to recover after the trip. I see a disadvantage in the fact that the last bike workout will be Wednesday, 4 days before the race day.

    The second set up:

    M: Strength TS6
    T: CF9 RFF4
    W: SSI1
    T: travel. eat, sleep and then RF3 + Strength TS1
    F: SCI1 CFF4
    S: STa1 CRe1 RTa1
    S: Race

    Thursday will be a little bit crowded but after a nap, I think I will manage to do 30 min of easy run and the light strength session, both helping to restore the body after the travel. Also, CFF4 session on Friday will be a good opportunity to check the bike and see that everything is ok with it.

    Any thoughts?
    Thank you, Marius
